Default New kits!

Sorry about the scant posts lately. As usual, another major event and we are behind. We have been trying to finish up some that we have had in the works for a long time.

Coming up next:

SPEV - with BT-52 parts instead of BT-50 as originally planned (thanks John Brohn)
Defender - with all balsa transitions instead of the one paper one as original (thanks John Dyer)
Centurion - to match the original prototype (long balsa nose cone) instead of production (cheaper short plastic nose cone)

Hopefully, by NARCON...

This is only on SVDT thread, for now, until we get closer to having SOMETHING ready. The commemorative kit is the 50th Anniversary Mark II. It was 50 years ago that Orville Carlisle got G. Harry "hooked" on model rocketry with that rocket. Seems like only yesterday.

And... we now have the SVDT discount code activated for 30% discount to members. We were going to do 20% plus 10% for NAR members, but I think all but 2 SVDT members are also NAR members anyway.

Cool. I just finished an SPEV with 24mm power, but I'll definitely build a kit. The Defender and Centurion have been on my cloning list for a while also.

It's not often that I'm rendered speechless, but Carl seems to make that happen on a semi-regular basis.

So, are you doing reserved # kits still? If so, please put my name down for one of each of those. Thanks, Carl!

And here I thought the jaw-droppingly good Semroc service couldn't get any better....

Thanks, Carl!

Yes, if you do reserve these three kits, I'd like two of each. The SPEV is good news, as I lost my original one due to a motor with a too-thick ceramic end cap.

Looked at my last credit card bill and noticed it had been a couple of months since my last order <g>! Figured SEMROC woudl be working on something good!

Carl,
If you are holding a "reserve" list, please put me down for a Defender and a Centurion.
Thanks,
Jerry

Carl,

If there is a 'reserve' list...

Please put me down for one each of SPEV, Defender & Centurion.

I had been wondering what was up...

Thanks,

Bob
